Meeting Date: 11/13/19-11/14/19

Meeting Details:

On November 13 and 14, 2019, the committee will discuss the topic of immunological responses to metal-containing products regulated as medical devices. The discussion will focus on metal-containing implants as well as dental amalgam. Implants are medical devices that are placed into a surgically or naturally formed opening of the human body and are intended to remain there after the procedure for an extended period of time (typically, greater than 30 days). For decades, metal-containing implants have been used in a large number of medical specialties including cardiology, orthopedics, dentistry, gastroenterology, and neurology or neurosurgery. Recent postmarket issues with some metal-on-metal orthopedic implants and gynecological metal-containing implants have raised questions about the potential for some patients to develop unexpected or heightened biological responses to the implant. These may include local (peri-implant) adverse events and potentially systemic manifestations, which may impact a patient's quality of life and necessitate medical or surgical intervention. While not considered an implant, dental amalgam is included in this discussion because of its potential for patient and user exposure to mercury compounds and some purported similarities in the adverse biological responses and clinical manifestations elicited by some dental amalgams to that of traditional metal implants.

Meeting Date: 10/14/11-10/14/11

Meeting Details:

On October 14, 2011, the committee will discuss, make recommendations, and vote on a premarket approval application for the Progensa PCA3 assay sponsored by Gen-Probe, Inc. The Progensa PCA3 assay is indicated for use in conjunction with other patient information to aid in the decision for repeat biopsy in men 50 years of age or older who have had one or more previous negative prostate biopsies and for whom a repeat biopsy would be recommended based on current standard of care, before consideration of PCA3 assay results. A lower PCA3 score is associated with a decreased likelihood of a positive biopsy.

Meeting Date: 12/3/08-12/3/08

Meeting Details:

The committee will discuss and make recommendations on the premarket notification application for the Fujirebio HE4 EIA kit and associated Risk of Malignancy algorithm (ROMA\TM\) Test. The HE4 EIA is an enzyme immunometric assay for the quantitative determination of HE4 in human serum. The HE4 EIA, used in conjunction with the ARCHITECT CA 125 II assay, creates a predictive probability of epithelial ovarian cancer using a mathematical function referred to as the ROMA\TM\, for use in premenopausal and postmenopausal women presenting with an adnexal mass who have already been referred to an oncologic specialist and are scheduled for surgery. Subjects categorized as low risk for epithelial ovarian cancer using the ROMA\TM\ value may have surgical intervention performed by a non-oncology specialist. The results must be interpreted in conjunction with other clinical findings in accordance with standard clinical management guidelines. The assay is not indicated as an aid in a decision to proceed to surgery.

Meeting Date: 10/29/19-10/29/19

Meeting Details:

The committee will discuss supplemental new drug application (sNDA 021945/S-023#) for MAKENA (hydroxyprogesterone caproate injection, 250 milligrams per milliliter) manufactured by AMAG Pharmaceuticals. In 2011, MAKENA received approval under the accelerated approval pathway (21 CFR part 314, subpart H, and section 506(c) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 356(c)) for reducing the risk of preterm birth in women with a singleton pregnancy who have a history of singleton spontaneous preterm birth. MAKENA was shown in the preapproval clinical trial to reduce the proportion of women who delivered at less than 37 weeks gestation, a surrogate endpoint that FDA determined was reasonably likely to predict a clinical benefit of preterm birth prevention, such as improved neonatal mortality and morbidity. As required under 21 CFR 314.510, the Applicant conducted a postapproval confirmatory clinical trial to verify and describe clinical benefit. AMAG Pharmaceuticals has disclosed that this completed confirmatory trial did not demonstrate a statistically significant difference between the treatment and placebo arms for the co-primary endpoints of reducing the risk of recurrent preterm birth or improving neonatal mortality and morbidity. The committee will consider the trial's findings and the sNDA in the context of AMAG Pharmaceuticals' confirmatory study obligation.
